Adult Acne – it seems that many people treat this genuine problem as something that goes away with age. After all, all TV Ads show us that Acne is only present on teenagers who are going to their prom parties. So once they cross this age, acne never comes back.
Well, that is just not true – and for adults suffering from this here are some simple steps towards treating adult acne.
Factually, it is true that many people who suffer from adult acne are those who have also faced this problem during their teenage years. Furthermore, the skin changes as you age so the treatment that worked in that age might not be as effective for adult acne. Because of this, here are some tips on how to treat adult acne.
1. First, there are reputed OTC (over the counter) acne treatment products available
that can treat mild acne breakouts. However, the keyword is ‘reputed.’ Research the ingredients, go through genuine reviews and consult your dermatologist.
There are products that entirely chemical in nature and ineffective. These will neither treat your acne nor be gentle with your skin.
2. Second, treat your skin with care.
Even before acne breaks out in its entirety, choose products that are preventive in nature. Both Charcoal and Coconut Milk based products have shown efficacy in treating and preventing Acne. Charcoal even clears out the toxins from your skin pores, rejuvenating the skin and retaining a glow. Making them a part of your daily beauty routine will help, particularly if you tend to have frequent acne outbreaks.
3. Third, never squeeze your acne!
It goes without saying, but we all have that urge to get rid of it quickly. Apart from being painful, doing this will cause the infection to go deeper into the skin – leading to future outbreaks of acne.
4. Fourth, eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water.
In order to flush away toxins that could cause acne, you need to drink lots of water and eat fruits and vegetables. A lot of our problems can trace their source back to toxins that remain in the body. And there are only two ways of removing them – First, by always taking care of our diet so that they do not accumulate inside our system and Second, by flushing them out of our body.
Make sure that you eat less fried and oily foods. Stay away from the oversaturated junk foods that keep depositing toxins in our body. Make a habit of drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day and exercise regularly.
